Kendrick (2-6) picked up a rare win Wednesday despite allowing four runs over 7.1 innings against the Reds. He struck out one and walked one.

Kendrick actually had a good stat line going -- one run in seven innings -- until he let the Reds rally against him in the eighth. Clearly, manager Walt Weiss should have known to quit while he was ahead with Kendrick, considering the righty hadn't gone more than seven innings in a start all year long. He'll get the Dodgers on Monday.

Kendrick saw his season record drop to 1-6 Friday against the Giants, after he gave up four runs on five hits and three walks over 6.1 innings.

Kendrick has done well to work deeper into games his last three times out, and even though he's generally been able to avoid further damage to his ERA, the overall results are uninspiring. The right-hander's pitch-to-contact approach has unsurprisingly kept his strikeout rate at a meager 12.7 percent, which hasn't lent itself to much fantasy utility. Even in NL-only leagues, it's probably wise at this point to keep Kendrick on the bench during weeks he has a start at Coors Field lined up.

Kendrick threw his second consecutive quality start on Sunday, allowing just one run to the Dodgers over eight strong innings in a tough-luck loss.

After a string of rough outings ballooned his ERA to a dismal 8.70 for the year, Kendrick has rebounded to yield just three runs in 14 innings in his last two starts, although he failed to win on either occasion. Kendrick still carries minimal fantasy value and will face the Giants in his next scheduled start on Friday.

Kendrick earned a no-decision Tuesday against the Angels, giving up seven hits but holding them to two earned runs in seven innings.

This was Kendrick's best outing of the season by far. Heading into Tuesday's start, he had allowed one home run in each of his starts, and had allowed four or more runs in all of them. He'll look to continue this turnaround Sunday against the Dodgers.

Kendrick endured yet another rough start on Sunday, giving up six runs on six hits over 5.0 innings against the Padres to earn his fourth loss in his last four decisions.

San Diego scored four runs via the home run, which has been a problem for Kendrick all season. The 30-year-old is now the owner of an ugly 8.73 ERA and will look to right the ship against the Dodgers on Saturday.

Kendrick will start Sunday's game in San Diego, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

Kendrick was originally slated to start Monday against Arizona, but he was moved up a day. This means he will not have two starts next week. Tyler Matzek will start Monday for the Rockies.

Kendrick was roughed up for eight runs on 10 hits and a walk and lasted just 4.1 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

The eight earned runs tied a career high for Kendrick, who has been abysmal since tossing seven shutout innings against the Brewers on Opening Day. The right-hander served up two home runs in Tuesday's outing to bring his total allowed on the season to eight, which is the second most of any pitcher in the league. With an 8.36 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over five starts, Kendrick may be forced to transition to a bullpen role if he continues to struggle with locating his cutter in subsequent outings.

Kendrick gave up four runs over seven innings but didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Padres.

Kendrick gave up solo homers to Yangervis Solarte and Wil Myers in the outing, but did well for the most part in mitigating the damage in his second appearance of the season at Coors Field. The start represent a vast improvement over the results Kendrick had generated over his previous two turns, though it shouldn't be taken as a sign of what's to come. Opposing batters are hitting .309 against the right-hander this season, and with neither a fluky BABIP (.324) nor a poor strand rate (70.6%) to assign blame, expect Kendrick's ERA and WHIP to remain inflated.

Kendrick was lit up for six runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.2 innings Friday against the Dodgers.

Kendrick never had much of a shot at coming away with the win Friday with reigning Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw taking the hill for the Dodgers, but the Rockies were hoping he'd at least submit a more competitive effort. After tossing seven shutout innings against the Brewers on Opening Day, Kendrick has since been tagged for 14 runs over his last two turns.

Kendrick was torched for eight runs (all earned) on eights hits and five walks over five innings to take the loss Saturday against the Cubs.

Suffice to say that Kendrick's first taste of Coors Field didn't go well, as he served up three solo home runs and gave up two additional extra-base hits in his second start of the season. The right-hander usually does a decent job of keeping the ball on the ground (career 46 GB%), but his propensity for yielding contact could nonetheless continue to prove toxic at the MLB's most hitter-friendly ballpark. Dismal outings such as Saturday's could become a common occurrence this season.
